God, are you awake yet?

So, What Do You Think?

I found this quote today, and I wanted to share it with my friends because the meaning is not immediately made apparent. Without the rest of the book nearby to garner context, we can make it our own. I like verses like these that make me put on my glasses of profundity. I'm very interested in hearing what this quote might mean to you. We can discuss it in the comments section.

"Yesterday I lived bewildered, in illusion. But now I am awake, flawless and serene, beyond the world. From my light the body and the world arise. So all things are mine, or nothing is."

- Ashtavakra Gita

A Pythagorean Synchronicity

Last night I was reading an article in the AMORC Rosicrucian Digest. It was about Pythagoras and his contribution to music. Within the article a short tale was told of how a young man was ill with revenge over being rejected by his lover and wanted to burn her house down. Pythagoras suggested that the young man was under the influence of a certain musical scale and prescribed that he "change his tune" to another scale.

After reading the article I cheerfully kept repeating the phrase "change your tune" inside my head. I thoughtfully remembered how I have heard that phrase before when being reprimanded for something or another. I now finally knew where that idiom truly came from and it tickled me! So I played with the phrase for a few moments.

Earlier today I was reading some messages on Facebook, particularly those on my nephew's page. He had made a clever comment about something or another and someone responded with, "When you're older you may change your tune."

Something I Can Learn From

Living in forests far away from other people is not true seclusion. True seclusion is to be free from the power of likes and dislikes. It is also to be free from the mental attitude that one must be special because one is treading the path. Those who remove themselves to far forests often feel superior to others. They think that because they are solitary they are being guided in a special way and that those who live an ordinary life can never have that experience. But that is conceit and is not help to others. The true recluse is one who is available to others, helping them with affectionate speech and personal example.

The Celestial Sanctum

The images above are based on a document from the Rosicrucians called "Liber 777". The document is available to members and non-members alike. I have found a page online where it can be read - HERE. The document asks the reader to visit the Celestial Sanctum using their own visualization of what the Sanctum might look like.

My imagery is inspired by the Ivory Tower from one of my favorite childhood movies called "The Never Ending Story". The Ivory Tower is how I imagine the Celestial Sanctum. Everyone has their own imagery even though the energy it accesses is the same to everyone.

The 1,000th Post

Were I to describe my self, I'd say I'm a philosopher and a lover, born to die before death. I dream and imagine; I sense and I feel. I am an alchemist, mage and mystic. I like weddings, especially between kings and queens and the sun and the moon. A long time ago I set out on a journey to find the Holy Grail, the Philosopher's Stone. In the process I have been undergoing a transformation. So far, that transformation has lead me here to a place in between worlds. And it is from here that I seek to travel to a place where I must die in order to gain entry to the new world, only it is not by physical death that I will be dying. Hope to see you there.
